Here, Brit Jon Langford of the much venerated Mekons and California-born singer-songwriter Richard Buckner get together, and there’s far more at work than the two troubadours throwing down a few cold ones for kicks. The meeting of Langford’s glass-half-full vibe with Buckner’s brand of resignation-verging-on-despair results in a perfect emotional mix, and their vocal styles (Langford’s hopeful yelp, Buckner’s darkly prophetic rasp) play off each other charmingly. They wrote three tracks each, and three are collaborations. Two of those — the opening “Rolling of the Eyes” and “The Inca Princess” — are raucous, joyfully messy songs that recall beer-soaked Mekons shows, while the third collaboration, “No Tears Tonight,” finds the two commiserating together, with both performers’ sensitive sides seeping out between mandolins and mariachis. Individually penned tracks mirror their author’s oeuvres, but occasionally Buckner might sing in a Langford-ized shanty style (the beautifully sorrowful “Nothing to Show”), or sound like he’s on a foot-stomping Mekons track (“Torn Apart”). Buckner, for the most part, sounds like himself on his own tunes, his best being “Do You Wanna Go Somewhere?,” which echoes and aches with all the loneliness of an empty room.
